Yj 5.9l swap

So I figure once I'm back in town I'll start pulling parts off my donor truck. I can't seem to find much info on this swap so I figured I'd give creating a thread a try. My jeep is a 92 2.5l yj and the donor is a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.9l good engine and axles but bad trans.

The truck currently has an auto trans (46-re I think?) and definetly want to swap for a manual. I know this will be. I don't know what axles are on the truck but I'd like to reuse them ( if anyone knows that info I'd appreciate it).

If anyone has a part list or any info on this it would be awesome, I definetly realize this will be a big project just gathering all the info I can at this point so I can get an idea of a budget and some plans going.

Thanks for reading!

This has been done by numerous people here, including myself. I'm running a 2001 5.9 in my CJ7. Check out Backwoodsoffroad.com for some detailed writeups and parts as well.

I had hotwireauto.com build my harness, but plenty of folks do it themselves. Good Luck!
